Bamajam 2010 organizers say the event was a success, drawing about 109,000 fans each day, for an aggregate gate count of 300,000 over three days.
Held June 3-5 in Enterprise, Alabama, The Verizon Wireless Bamajam Music and Arts Festival 2010 hosted a musical variety including Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band, Train, Rodney Atkins, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Gregg Allman, and Buddy Guy.
Early results show that the estimated economic impact from the festival is $6-8 million for Enterprise and the county. If nearby Dothan, AL is included, the economic impact rises to $10-11 million for restaurants, hotels, gas, air, stores, shops and labor employed for the festival. Every hotel in a 50 mile radius was booked. BamaJam created over 2,000 temporary jobs.
